Language interference has become a crucial notion for multiple studies due to ongoing globalization with the rapid growth of language learning. To acquire several languages is necessary for effective communication in the modern world, thus it seems vital to study interference from different angles. As interference affects multilingual communication, it is significant to look at this notion in the framework of interpreting, the activity based on the transfer of ideas from one language into another, which has not been fully done before. The current paper aims to examine the ways language interference exists in sight translation. This will be done by analyzing examples of sight translations made by third-year interpreting students. Consequently, the ways interference emerges in sight translation will be provided, the typology of common mistakes and their statistics will be outlined. The results of the research might shed light on the mechanisms of interference in sight translation, which can facilitate interpreter training and studying of the discipline, making the teaching process more efficient.
